Hi again

I've scheduled Avery's presentation[1] for Saturday April 9 at 2:30pm in my
livingroom, a stone's throw from Grace Cathedral in SF.  Those who RSVP
will get the precise address and directions.  It's a mile from the Embarcadero
BART/SF Muni rail station and 1.9 miles from Caltrain with electric bus access
from both.  Parking can be had, for a price, at various local garages.

If plan to come at that time, please RSVP tony at godshall.org or togo at of.net
with subject "bup SF" and you'll receive the specific address and more details
on how to get here.

Please feel free to pass the details above to anyone you think might
be interested.

Best Regards

> Bup "it backs things up" does efficient sub-file deduplication and

> It's based git and python and the rolling-checksum concept that makes

> Bup has no user-friendly graphical UI yet- this will be more about the
> technology and the commandline interface.
> Avery wrote his Ph.D. thesis on this idea- it's sure to be

> data compression algorithms.

> it at my place in SF or if I'll need to look for a bigger venue...
> I'll send the specific location and schedule soon as it's firm.

> PS2: Feel free to forward
